    Indicators/wipers failure after journey

    Hi I have a Mercedes 1995 C180 which is giving me a headache. The problem is a recent one, and is basically that the indicators and wipers sometimes fail. The strange thing is that the problem only surfaces when I've been driving the car (for 20mins+), shut it down and then tried to start it...

The result was 34mpg average at 70mph and I did it on one complete tank........ just! That car was mapped (V4 about 520) and was...

    My slow journey back to the army.

    Bit of a weird one for me really as I'm not the kind of guy to talk about this very often. (Especially on a motoring forum) I see this as a way of tracking my progress and being able to look back see how far I've come. With hopefully some useful input from others as there's a lot of guys on here...

    Delightful journey.

    Had to be in Brighton for 06.00 and went through bands of very heavy rain, standing water on M25/M25. Atrocious conditions, only saving grace very little traffic. Which was just as well because it gave me plenty of room to avoid the small silver car which hit standing water, braked hard and...

    DISTRONIC +: Furthest Journey

    Earlier this week I did 118 miles on DISTRONIC + (Nottingham to St Albans). It was OK, if a bit disorientating. Is this any kind of record?

    C220 CDI or C180K?

    Hi everyone, I'm looking to buy either a C220 CDI (56 Reg, 66k) or a C180k (55 Reg, 56k). I prefer the C220 given the better fuel economy (and it's a bit cheaper), but am a bit concerned by my driving patterns - that is, to / fro the station every day (1.5 miles each way) and then some...

    Train journey home.

    Travelling home from Central London last night made me think of the journey as a whole. Over 100 miles in 1hr, 20 minutes just wafting along was quite some achievement I thought, especially as we made a couple of stops on route. It made me think of the power involved in getting the train to...
